Product Test: BulletSafe panel for children’s backpacks

When I initially covered BulletSafe’s children’s backpack panel, I wasn’t sure if I thought it was a good idea. TFB readers had mixed emotions as well.

Behind the Scenes: Making a Video Trailer for a Gardening Book by Evelyn Hadden

Though it’s no longer a new idea, it seems odd to me that a gardening book would have a video trailer. How can a video—a very different medium—give a taste of what readers might experience? On the other hand, videos lend drama to their subjects, and though I’d hope a book would have more than […]

Two-Way Communication With Dolphins Begins With ‘Sargassum’

A human researcher floats near her ship recording a series of whistles from a nearby grey-skinned creature with great dark eyes. Amid the chatter, the computer recognizes a waveform and whispers a word into the researcher’s ear: sargassum. This isn’t first contact with an alien race—but it’s almost as cool […] and a Call for Photos and Videos by Susan Harris

Thanks, Rant commenters, for your great suggestions for improving videos of gardens, like the videos I showed you last week of the National Arboretum in April.  I heard you that the photos were whizzing by too fast, and that most of you prefer the techno music over Vivaldi.  Pixelation and other technical points were mentioned, […]

Both are aiming to deliver internet access to the world’s offline billions—one with balloons, the other with drones. But what about dirigibles? Dirigibles (or airships) figure prominently in early 20th century […]

New ‘Smart’ Gel Tags Aim To Prevent Leftovers From Becoming Science Experiments

Most of us aren’t scientists, but every once in awhile, nearly everyone unintentionally runs a science experiment in their refrigerator.
